Get paid for signing up to free services via Quidco, TopCashback and Oh My Dosh.
Though most of the time cashback sites will give you a percentage of the purchase price back when spending money you planned to spend via online retailers, it’s possible to get paid a fixed amount just for opening up accounts with the likes of film streaming services and credit score trackers.
Here are some of the best ones I’ve spotted. Don’t forget you can also get welcome bonuses worth up to £17 if you’re also new to Quidco, TopCashback and Oh My Dosh.
Bear in mind that some of the rates listed below could be for premium members, meaning you might see a lower rate. Plus rates can, and will, change regularly.
Free TopCashback cashback
Experian Credit Score: £9
Sign up to Experian’s free credit score service and you’ll get £6! You’ll be able to check your score with no charge and there’s no ongoing cost. If you want to see your credit report then I’d recommend other free services.
Successfully apply for this overseas spending debit card and you’ll earn £10 cashback. You don’t need to use the card – in fact I’d suggest you use one of my best buy travel spending cards instead.
Free Quidco cashback
Experian Boost: £4
Experian Boost is a service which promises to add a few points to your Experian credit score by factoring in regular payments such as your Council Tax bill and streaming subscriptions. There’s no guarantee it’ll actually help you when applying for credit, but you can get a free £4 for signing via Quidco.
Money Supermarket Credit Monitor: £3.50
Another service that lets you check your credit score for free, this time from comparison site Money Super Market. You’ll get £3.50 for signing up via Quidco.
TSB: £30 to £60
This rate changes regularly, but at the time of writing, it’s at £30 or £40. To get the money you need to open a new TSB Spend & Save or TSB Spend & Save Plus current account. You can’t already have any other TSB accounts.
Once you open the account you’ve got a few minor hoops to jump through.
- Keep the account open for at least 120 days
- In three of the four months pay in at least £500 and make two debit payments
There’s more detail on the Quidco page. There are further conditions to get more cashback from TSB themselves, but that’s separate (and I think not worth the hassle). There’s also a Spend & Save Plus account but this comes with a monthly fee.
Once the four months are up this is an ideal account to switch for bonuses elsewhere.
Free Oh My Dosh cashback
Oh My Dosh free trials: Up to £34.25
There are a number of trials you can sign up for with Oh My Dosh, with the ones listed below not requiring you to pay anything upfront.
There’s a £10 minimum payout with Oh My Dosh so I’d make sure there are enough you can or will want to take advantage of first. Though you can obviously also shop at other retailers, make sure you compare with TCB and Quidco first to go for the best paying cashback rate.
I’ve listed below which ones are free trials and how long that is for. Make sure you cancel the trial before it ends – otherwise you’ll spend more money than you make. A couple might require a quick task.

- £3.50 Lionsgate+ via Prime (30 Days)
- £2.50 MGM via Prime (7 days)
